What is the Home Depot Price Match Policy?
The price match policy is if you find the identical item from a competitor Home Depot's price match will not only match the price but beat it by 10%.
Once I found the price then what?
Bring the ad, printout, or photo with you to the register for validation. They may contact the retailer during validation to confirm the price match (but not always).
What is the Home Depot Price Match Policy Online?
For online purchases here's what you need to know:
If you've found the identical item somewhere else for cheaper, you can still get the Home Depot price match online.
Keep in mind however, they do factor in shipping when figuring out the price match and if you are price matching from an Amazon price it will have to be shipped and sold from Amazon.
Not only that but if the site is out of stock, or the site shows that the item is unable to ship you won't be able to get the Home Depot price match. The item must be available and ready to ship from the competitors website to get the Home Depot price match online.
The bad part about Home Depot Online Price Match Policy:
Not only is it a little more work figuring out the shipping of the item, but also when price matching online at Home Depot, keep in mind the 10% additional is not valid with online price matching.
How to price match online at Home Depot:
You have two options you can either call Home Depot at 1-800-430-3376 or visit their website and start a live chat to get the price match.
Does Home Depot Price Match Amazon?
For online purchases yes, Home Depot will price match Amazon, as long as the item you're looking to price match with Home Depot from Amazon is being sold by Amazon (can't be 3rd party seller).
Keep in mind for in-store purchases, it is up to the discretion of the store manager whether to accept a price match with Amazon.
As long as you have an item that's being sold by Amazon, I would totally give it a try. Reason being is there are a lot of really great managers who will allow the price match (as they should) and when you have a store where you have a successful price match, keep going to them.
What is the Home Depot Lowest Price Guaranteed?
Pretty much any price you find an item for, they'll beat by 10%.
Here's the fineprint- when making a purchase if you find an item that's identical to the one you're buying and it's in stock at a local retailer and can be shipped Home Depot will match the price and beat it by 10% making it the lowest price guarantee.
When shopping online, the price of the item you're buying plus shipping has to be lower than the Home Depot price (also must be able to ship) to get the 10% off price match guarantee.
For in-store purchases just print out the ad, or a photo and bring it to the register for validation to get the Home Depot price match guarantee.
